TWO of the topiary sheep which took pride of place in this year's Big Brother garden are now on display at a Clevedon florist.The sheep - created by Clevedon based family run business Entirely Topiary - are sitting in the window of Judith Locke Florists in Old Church Road.The sheep were lent to Judith for her display for a few weeks until owner Peter Bissett puts them up for sale.The farmyard animals are made out of a solid, welded frame which is then covered in plastic boxwood matting.Mr Bissett also made a five- and-a-half foot rabbit, a cocking dog and the nowhere man which all featured in this year's Big Brother garden.Mr Bissett said: "This is the first time I have been approached by Big Brother and they have now asked me if I am interested in providing topiary features for the celebrity version of the show."But this is not the first time Mr Bissett has seen his interesting topiary on the telly. He was also asked to make a lifesize model of Charlie Dimmock for a Channel 4 gardening show and a four-and-a-half foot dinosaur.His work is also ordered by topiary enthusiasts as far away as America and Japan.And the sheep have been causing quite a stir at Judith Locke Florists.Owner Judith said: "The sheep are amazing and we have had lots of people stop to look and ask about them."We have had a topiary dog before as part of the display, but this is the first time we have ever had sheep.
